Ex-DEA Agent Jack Merchant is living out his
precarious retirement on the docks of Charlestown, Mass.,
surrounded by the revenge-minded dealers and punks he used
to put away. All he's got is his sloop, the Lila, but soon
enough he gets a visit from the repo man. Except the repo
man's a woman. Her proposition: they've got a week to track
down a spoiled rich couple who've disappeared with their yacht.
Find it, and Merchant can keep the Lila. The trouble is, they're
not the only ones looking... A dark tale with enough kinks
and twists to keep you guessing to the last page, The Repo
is the electrifying new thriller from Bill Eidson, and the
first book in a new series featuring Jack Merchant.
"Bill Eidson is an important voice in crime
fiction, with a slant and energy all his own."
